Fashola hosts One-Day Governor

01 July 2014, 09:52

Ikeja - Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State on Monday said that his administration would continue to do its best to improve access to qualitative education.

The governor made the pledge when he and other members of his cabinet received the 2014 Lagos One-Day Lagos State Governor, Olabanji Edun, during an executive session in Ikeja.

The 15- year-old Edun won this year`s edition of the state`s Spelling Bee Competition to emerge the state’s One-Day Governor.

He is an SS2 student of the Army Children Secondary School, Ikeja.

Fashola said that widening access to education would enable children of all social strata and backgrounds to have equal education opportunities.

He said that the free education policy of the state government was a deliberate strategy to ensure that children from indigent homes could get education.

The governor said that he was glad that the state`s public education was producing great results in spite of challenges.

He said that emergence of Edun, a carpenter’s son, as the One-Day Governor, showed that there were great possibilities and potential in the state's public education system.
